        New to hybrid? Review this Power Point: Hybrid Learning Tips


         What to expect as a hybrid student:  

    • Students will have 7 classes each day, starting with an Enrichment class
    • Students cannot change their classes at this time unless there is an error (i.e. student is in 8th grade but enrolled in 7th grade math.)
    • Classes are 43 minutes each; Enrichment is 25 minutes
    • Students must always wear masks.
    • Students must always maintain 6 feet of distance.
    • There are no lockers. Student may have backpacks to hold all their belongings.
    • Hybrid students will attend class on either an A day or B day (see calendar for your group.)
    • When hybrid students are at home, these are called “virtual” days. Students must login to Microsoft Teams and complete assignments at home. These days are set up to match a regular school day (7:30-2:00 p.m.). If students do not login to each class by 2:00 p.m., they will be marked absent.
    • Most assignments will be submitted through Microsoft Teams. Students must have access to a computer and internet at home. Billinghurst may rent laptops and internet “hotspots” to any family, if needed.
    • Access to a printer at home is not required. If a student needs to print something, they can use a school printer in a classroom or the library.
    • Access to a cell phone at school is not required. However, cell phones are allowed for school use. Students are encouraged to download the Microsoft Teams App to use at school.
